Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

The HfP chat thread – Thursday 24th September

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

We have decided to run this daily chat thread on Head for Points during the coronavirus outbreak.

Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the de facto repository for random comments and questions.  With the news flow being lighter, we are running fewer ‘Bits’ articles.

The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind.  At this tricky time, and given that many of you are at home, we want the HfP community to have a place to chat.


Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article.  This has long-term benefits as it keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.

By default, HfP shows the last page of comments under the article.  If you want to see the first page of comments and read them all from beginning to end in order, click here:  The page will refresh with this article but the comments will now show the first page and not the last page.

Old chat threads are hidden from the HfP home page.  If you want to look for something in an old thread, click here.  This brings up all the articles in our ‘General’ category which includes the chat threads.

      Sorry, I screwed up. Still trying to get to grips with some aspects of how the new site works behind the scenes! It was meant to be a draft for a future date. Expect it during October ….

    Does anyone know if you can hold both IHG credit cards at the same time? I have the premium and already hit the free night spend (current spend is about £18k) and would like the apply for free card for the 10k sign up bonus. This would probably help me hit Spire status and the 25k bonus points.
